Nine people are assigned to Falcon Bravo, a decommissioned oil rig 250 miles out in the North Sea, to undertake routine maintenance. Eight men and one woman, until the mystery on the sub-level makes itself known. Salvation comes in the form of an unsuspecting crew member who provides the creature with its first proper meal - himself.
When caught in the act of feeding on a crew member Euterich knows the game is up and it is only a matter of time before he is hunted down and killed. Now the demonic shapeshifter has only one desperate objective in mind, to perpetuate his kind while he still can. He needs to get the body count down to one man and one woman, but is that one man human? Offshore, it is isolation, thrilling and visceral tension, and a place where no escape is possible.

After reading up on this book I thought this sound so different, so checking the good reviews it had I thought why not so glad I did, This book reminded me of The Thing and Alien so similar in many ways. When the group of workers are assigned to the oil rig in the middle of the sea to do some routine maintenance work little do they know they are not alone, I really felt for the characters trapped in the middle of the sea fighting for their lives, its a gripping and disturbing story from start to finish.
Compelling and scary
I've not "read" anything else like this before, so I have no comparisons to make. It was recommended to me and I took a chance on it. It turned out to be well worth it.
I've not come across the narrator before, but I thought he was excellent
Don't eat the pie.
A nicely conceived bit of horror.
"I'm returning this one"
I gave this a one star rating. I don't think they could do anything to the story to shoot this to a 4 must less a 5.
Right now, no. I am very tired of reading GREAT reviews only to find I can't even make it half way through the book. I just don't get it. Who is writing the reviews???
If the story line is not good, it doesn't matter how the narrator performs. I can also say that I have found a number of good books but found it very difficult to listen because the narrator was awful.
None. I really couldn't get into this book at all. Period.
This is a very well-written story that is not only narrated brilliantly, but is acted with nine distinct characters. I have never listened to a book where I was drawn into the story like this. Gregory Peyton is a new star in the world of audio books. Lucy Pepperdine can truly get the reader involved in a big way.
